Futures Contract Size Specifications

Futures Contract Size (column)

 

If the Instrument you are trading is not shown below, you can check with your broker (or their website), or search online. This data was compiled from various Futures websites and is correct to the best of our knowledge. 

If you still cannot find the proper contract size for a specific instrument you trade, you can always trial-and-error different contract sizes until the P&L is correct, or manually enter your own P&L in the “Gross P&L column” of the Trading Log.

FINANCIALS

* Some Financials have a unique tick structure. Some users have found that 632.435 works as a Contract Size for their Notes and Bonds, but others have found that 1,000 (or anywhere in between) works for them. If the stated figures do not present the proper P&L for you, please enter ” 1,000 ” in your Contract Multiplier cell (in the Tracking/Analysis sheet) and then manually enter your actual P&L in the Trading Log (Gross P&L) column.
